Community Tasting Notes 7

  • fah Does not like this wine: 86 points

    October 13, 2021 - This wine lacks fruit and has a slight bitterness to it that over powers everything else. Really didn't like it at all.

    October 12, 2021 - Average pinot. Not much fruit, acidity or richness. Medium light body.

  • The Drunken Cyclist Likes this wine: 92 points

    June 18, 2021 - Retail $45. Big. Ass. Bottle. Agglomerated stopper (non-DIAM). Every since I started getting into American Pinot Noir, Gary Farrell has always been high on my list. Not only was Gary a pioneer in the Russian River making some of the best Pinots in the 80s and 90s, I would once again consider the producer among the best in the region behind the more than capable hands of winemaker Theresa Heredia. Light in the glass with considerable cherry fruit and earth, this flagship Pinot always delivers. The palate is rich, fruity, and wonderfully balanced with a consistent tartness that accentuates the fruit. Wonderful.
